About Us


Thanks for taking the time to check us out. You can learn a lot about us on this website. But, of course, the best way to get to know us is to come on a Sunday morning and see for yourself. You'll find us to be warm, welcoming, and easy to get to know.

Greater Portland Bible Church began in 1977 with a group of about 30 families who longed for a church that combined good Bible teaching with dynamic worship. 40+ years later, those elements are still the heart of our times together. We are learning that the whole Bible tells the story of Jesus, so "good Bible teaching" has come to mean not only explaining what the Bible says, but letting our hearts see Him in every passage. We want to leave every worship gathering more impressed with Jesus and more compelled to follow Him than when we came.

Although we count many churches in the Portland area as our friends, Greater Portland is not affiliated with any denomination or movement.

What We Believe

Join us on Sundays

A Few Introductions

Meet and Greet

If you've started attending GPBC and are interested in getting to know us a little better, join us at one of our informal meet and greets after church on the first Sunday of every month. It's super low key and simply a way for you to meet some of our staff and for us to get to know you a little bit. You are welcome to ask us any questions you may have. There is no program or agenda and it ends when the donuts are gone. (Or whenever people are ready to head home to lunch.) Look for the location in that Sunday's bulletin in the app or ask a known pastor/staff member that morning.
